Podcast Notes

  • Our guest this week is Dave Rollinson from HEBI Robotics.
    • Dave is a robotics engineer with a PhD in Robotics and a B.S. in M.E. from Carnegie Mellon University.
    • His thesis research advanced the control and design of articulated, modular, snake-like robots with a focus towards real-world applications like urban search and rescue and industrial inspection.
  • HEBI designs and manufactures industrial motorized actuator building blocks. HEBI takes the hard part out of designing automated robotics.
  • The actuators are torque/force controlled compared to absolute position control.
  • X-Series Industrial Smart Actuator
  • Assisted Actuator Assembly with X-Series

    So are the electronics for the actuators built by Macrofab? Curious what the connection is.
